*** When a Post is Moved ***
« on: November 10, 2008, 12:03:36 AM »
Greetings

Once in awhile a post will end up in an inappropriate category. For example, let's say I'm a poster with a question about Prozac (but maybe I also happen to be a Hypochondriac - which I in fact am!). Initially, I decide to post my question in the "Medications & Therapy" forum because my question is predominantly about Prozac. But then I suddenly decide that since the Hypochondria forum has 10 times as many threads, perhaps I'd get more (or a faster) replies and so I post my prozac question there. So what happens is that we end up with a zillion posts all concentrated in one forum (the Hypochondria forum) and the other forums start to get a little lonely because they aren't getting any attention :( .

Also, what happens is that folks looking for information in the Medications & Therapy forum miss out on all the medication-related posts that wrongly ended up in the Hypochondria forum. Now it's no secret that the Hypochondria forum is busier than a wild west saloon in the summertime but please don't feel like your being picked on if you post a question about the best way to grill cheeseburgers in the Hypochondria forum and it gets moved to the "General Topics" forum or you post a question about Paxil in the Hypochondria forum and it gets moved to the "Medications & Therapy" forums by either myself or one of the Moderators because it is our job to organize posts here in a way so that topics are easy to find and in relevant categories.

Think of it this way...your looking through a cookbook trying to find a recipe for apple pie but you never find it because the author of the book put it under "Chicken Dishes" instead of "Desserts". A forum works the same way :happy0151: .

- Regards, GreyGoose

Can I also add in that using swear words in posts will have them removed for good. Please respect the fact that other people have to read your words. Not everybody likes to read swear words. You may be angry when writing your post. You may be fed up. But if you really want help, keep it clean. We don't like having to remove posts. But we have had to remove a few over the past week due to content. Mainly bad language.

Thank You

I like the idea of them moving now because hypochondria seems to me like its the most popular category and my question in digestive disorders took a while to get answered because everyone wants to focus on the hypochondria category.
